Team India’s performance in the ICC T20 World Cup may have broken the hearts of cricket fans, but it is wise to forget the past and move on in the game. A three-match T20 International series is to be played between India and New Zealand from November 17. With this series, a new chapter is starting for Team India in the shortest format of cricket. This is the first assignment of head coach Rahul Dravid, while this is Rohit Sharma’s first T20I series as full-time T20 captain. Team India is preparing fiercely for this series. A video has been shared from the official Twitter account of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), in which Rohit is seen practicing batting, while Rahul is bowling a throw-down.
Rohit is seen in good rhythm during this period. Anyway, with Rohit returning to form after the first two matches of the T20 World Cup, he is fully prepared to face the Kiwi bowlers. The Kiwi team will play under the captaincy of Tim Southee in the T20 series, as Kane Williamson has decided not to play in the T20 International series to focus on the Test series.
Virat Kohli has also been rested from the T20 series, he will not play in the first Test and will join Team India during the second Test. Virat Kohli had already announced before the T20 World Cup that he would step down as the captain of the T20 team after this tournament, while continuing to lead the ODI and Test teams.
